Hi All, Sorry if this is old new, but I wondered what everyone thought about this bit of info from the new BKFA site. "New Instructor Notice It is now a standard requirement of the BKFA that anyone wanting to become an Instructor, will have to pass their black sash grading with a minimum C grade pass. This has been implemented to ensure the standard of Kung Fu being taught meets the standard requirements of the BKFA. Anyone failing to achieve a C pass will be offered an opportunity to re-grade. There is a fee charged for re-examination and will have to be arranged through your Instructor. Instructors are to contact Master Yau." To me it starts off really good, saying that just because you pass your black it doesn't mean you're good enough to teach. I believe this was implemented due to the low standard of black sash applicants that attended the last grading back in June. But then the bit about having to pay a fee for re-examination sounds a bit like a new money making scheme. I think that it is a very good idea to restrict the teaching to the better black sashes, but that you should not have to pay to resit. Another big point about this is, what about all the people that passed last year of the year before that that are already teaching? It would be difficult to enforce this if it was back dated.
